What do tourists go to Moscow for? To see the Red Square, to visit the Cathedral of St. Basil, the Historical Museum, and the Mausoleum (which the Muscovites deem a bit controversial, but foreign tourists find especially interesting), to walk the Old Arbat, the city’s most famous pedestrian street. To witness the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, to visit the Tretyakov Gallery, to go to the Bolshoi Theater if you’re lucky to get tickets; or at least to take pictures against the backdrop of the famous hundred-ruble facade decorated by a quadriga by Clodt… Those coming with kids have an expanded mandatory program: on top of all of the above, they have to go to the Moscow Zoo and to a circus (the Tsvetnoi Boulevard Circus or its counterpart on Prospekt Vernadskogo).
